Product information: XPC SX58H7 PRO (Socket 1366) DDR3 Barebones - BlackNow with USB 3.0 and SATA 6 Gbit/s: Shuttle’s fastest Mini-PC is turbo-charged
The Shuttle XPC Barebone SX58 in its third edition “H7 Pro” offers an array of impressive new connectors. Internal serial ATA hard disks can now operate at a speed of 6 Gbit/s. The speed of external devices has also been increased so that connections with new USB 3.0 ports allow data transmission speeds of 5 Gbit/s. The 2011 version of this Mini-PC powerhouse is once again made completely out of aluminium. A 500W, 80-PLUS-certified power supply unit provides a reliable energy supply for the latest dual-slot graphics cards and even for Intel Core i7 processors with up to six cores. Effective cooling of the entire Mini-PC is ensured by an intelligent heatpipe cooling system with fully automatic control.
The fastest connection to external peripheral devices available to date
The USB 3.0 connectors of this model allow for data transfer of up to 5 Gbit/s (625 MB/s). This enables external devices such as USB hard disks to be connected and run at nearly the same speed as their internal siblings. USB 3.0 is downward compatible so that also devices of previous USB generations can be hooked up.
The interface for the fastest of memory media
Internal drives to be used inside this Mini-PC can transfer data at a speed of up to 6 Gbit/s. Hard drives thus run significantly faster and brand-new media technologies such as SSDs can use their full potential. Be sure to look for SATA 6 Gbit/s
High-performance processor from the market leader
The faster, intelligent multi-core technology of the Intel Core i7 processor employs its processing power exactly where it's most urgently needed, providing an incredible breakthrough in PC performance. This probably makes it the best Desktop processor in the world
8-channel HD audio
The superior high-definition sound with digital SPDIF output not only gives that perfect cinema feeling at home, it also offers optimal sound quality for your Skype VOIP telephone conferencing. Conveniently located ports ensure ultimate user friendliness.
Dual-slot graphic cards? No problem!
The creative engineers at Shuttle have worked out how to fit large and incredibly powerful dual-slot graphics cards into this compact PC. The special dimensions of the cards and the unusual fan size cause no problems at all in this Mini-PC.
Shuttle's patented Heatpipe Cooling technology with variable speed control automatically ensures maximum system stability and quiet operation in this aluminium Shuttle Mini-PC. Instead of swirling around the chassis, as is the case with conventional solutions, the warm air is specifically transferred out of the chassis.
Breathtaking 3D graphics and increased screen area
Really impressive 3D graphics performance can be achieved with modern graphics cards in the two PCI-E 2.0 slots. Gamers appreciate the high frame rates when using two graphics cards linked by CrossFire and professional users welcome the benefit of up to four monitors.
